      I was expecting something crap to get outraged over and I'm not disappointed.

        I am too befuddled by this video to have an opinion about the mascots. My only questions is: are those George's kids or grandkids?

              I am happy to that we no longer have to claim the worst Olympic mascot with Whatizit?/Izzy from 1996. I also did not think London 2012 could do worse with the mascots than they did with the logo, but I underestimated them.

                    Shouldnt mascots look like something you would want to hug and adorable and friendly. These one eyed robots look like they dropped acid in a disco on planet Metaliico and never left.

                        What a load of nonsense; they are great!!!!.
                        I am fed up with the Olympic mascots and their cuddly wuddly , schmaltzy irrelevant style of byegone years. Its the 21st Century, chaps, and the focus groups who basically made the decision tested over the last 18 months want something relevant to the age we are in even if you dont like it, cos yo are all so boring , predictable and old fashioned in your tastes. Some of the previous mascots were IRRELEVANT,TRITE, SAFE; well done the LOCOG people!!

                        Wenlock and Mandeville. Great name relevance to the OG and Paralympics.

                        BTW there more to ''taste' and style than Walt Disney Schmaltz.!! Get rid of your walking sticks

                          I must admit, I've yet to come across an Olympic mascot that I've liked....

                          For me, it's measured in degrees of revulsion.
                          My heart is still in the Caribbean....

                            Like all OG/WC mascots, they were created on and have come from the Island of Misfit Toys (not to be confused with the Island of Doctor Moreau), where they will return to after the OG, to remain forever. It's always a sad story when misfit toys are expected to fit into this cruel and unforgiving world... :wink:

                              Kids might like them. My kids loved the mascot (Haibao) used for the Shanghai Expo.


                              To me, these London ones are not too dissimilar. And we can't complain about publicity photo's like this
